Bulacan Football Club is a Hattrick football club from Bulacan, Philippines. The club was formed on the 4th of May, 2009 and was originally known as Jade Knights FC before changing name to Bulacan Football Club or Bulacan FC for short after it's relocation from manila to bulacan.


History

Bulacan Football Club (formerly Jade Knights FC) was formed as an amateur side in Manila, Philippines by a group of football enthusiasts who were too short to play Basketball, the Philippines' favorite sport. Determined to play a game they would enjoy and be good at, Jade Knights FC was born. The team first started to play against local amateur footballing teams made up of the neighbors kids and some who just wanted to kick around a ball. CedSeredrica then decided that they were too good for the neighbor's kids and made the team professional. After enjoying success for 4 seasons in Manila, the team decided to relocate to Bulacan and was renamed to Bulacan FC

The Cup

BFC's best Cup-run to date is reaching the quarterfinals of the Philippine Football Federation Cup in season 30, losing against Davao United to a 6-0 scoreline.

Supporters

BFC's supporters are called the The Red Carabaos, based in the town of Pandi Bulacan. They are one of the main reasons for the club's decision to move because of their passionate support not seen from the team's previous supporters in Manila.

Sponsorship

In 2010, the team agreed to place charitable institution Unicef's logo on the team's kit for 1 year in relation to the team's effort of helping less privileged children with the help of Unicef. Starting season 30, the team will be bannering the "SONY" brand logo on its jerseys after signing a multi-year P50 million deal with Japanese electronic giants SONY but will retain the Unicef logo on the team's practice jersey.
